My dozey arab gelding has bumped his face obviously quite hard in the field about 3 weeks ago (probably by putting his head through the fence to graze) He had a mark on it below his eyes to one side and a very large bump - almost like a bruise but hard (bone like a splint). This is in his dish area so is very obvious. He is only 4.
I've had this before with an arab youngster years ago but can't remember how long it took to go down, although to my recollection it did eventually. We are into week 4 now. I've been putting bone radial on it (embrocation) - has anyone had any recent experience of this and can they remember how long it took to go, if indeed it did and/or anything else I can put on it to help.
Many thanks in advance !!!
